So, even though the gingerbread man is likely one of the most iconic and classic decorations for Christmas, there is still so much that you can do to make them truly your own. In addition to the typical decorations, frosting and such, little accents personalize them beautifully. Of course, the dark, spiced cookie is still the basis but the rest is entirely up to you. Therefore, in order to get you going, we have compiled a small selection of some ideas to help you get in the spirit of these wonderful toys. Indeed, they’d be a great idea for a themed Christmas tree on which gingerbread people would be the dominant decoration.
